romney when he was talking about the 47%, like paul ryan when he was talking about makers versus takers there are an awful lot of folks in congress that folks are unemployed because they want to be unemployed, because they're lazy or something like that. it's simply false. i hate 20 go too far on a holiday metaphor, but if you go back and you read charles dickens, you see where the two gentlemen come to visit ebenezer scrooge on christmas eve and suggest to him that he might want to give a little to

views are changing in part because of mitt romney's candidacy. the huge mainstreaming of mormons in america. i have a number of stories in this book about relationships that evangelicals are building with muslims. we talk a lot about my friend, reverend bob roberts, a southern baptist preacher who during the ground zero time, they win on went out on a limb with how supportive they were. bob roberts in deep red texas started reading matt 10 things i love about muslims. ten things i admire about islam. and i thought, why are you doing this? and he said, i am a christian, as is what i have to do. you people are in trouble, and i have to stand up for you. so i find that wonderful and he built a civic bridge with me, based on the inspiration of this tradition. that kind of stuff is going on a little bit below the radar screen. a little bit behind the scenes in both campaigns. i think it is a broadly positive thing for america. >> what you think is the biggest roadblock that your organization or interface groups are facing today? what do you think are one or two things that people can
of the pullback came on u.n. how would you respond -- u.n., and how would you respond? >> if mitt romney were elected, he would surely call china is towards a manipulator and his first day and follow through to the commerce department, which adjudicates a lot of these trade completes -- >> were they afraid of that? >> i think they were nervous. at the same time that they know the candidates for president have made harsh statements about china before, during the course of the presidential campaign. they are aware that to all the different administrations over the last 40 years, the relationship has gotten better and there has been some constancy to the relationship. all the administrations have subscribed to the basic tenets of the u.s.-china policy. >> as there following the was quite ait close election. the leaders you engage with every day, what was their sense of what was happening in who they would be dealing with? >> they understood this was a matter of politics, and china has been politicized in every presidential election. there were many people that would be coming to visit china, peo
important thing. i think it was a mistake for mitt romney to use this as a political thing during the campaign. foreign policy should be bipartisan to the extent it is possible. in a time of tragedy, americans need to rally around -- rally together and not try to use it for political partisan purposes. mistakes were made. an ambassador was killed. we need to dissect it and see what happened and make sure it does not happen again. there were recommendations that were made. secretary clinton accepts all of them. she appointed someone to overview. i think that is important. it is not gotcha politics that i want to come out of this. we have to make sure that our diplomats in places all around the world are protected. congress has to do its part. i am troubled that the house has consistently low balled the money for diplomatic security around the world and is constantly lowball in anything to do with diplomacy around the world -- has constantly low balled in thing to do with diplomacy around the world. usually, the senate has a higher amount of money. the money that was agreed upon was

a million to the romney campaign and 9 million to obama's superpac. >> right, look, that's absolutely right. to put it in perspective, that's multiples of the amount of gun manufacturers, getting a lot of unwelcome press, have contributed to republicans. this is one of the biggest single sectors in donations to the democratic party. this is a pillar of democratic party fund raising, the entertainment business, in fact, number one donation to obama's super pac in the last cycle. maybe it's not surprising that the president has essentially ignored the potential effect of hollywood on our attitudes about violence, but it seems to me, any person who is looking at this honestly will reach a conclusion, yeah, we should figure out is there a connection? >> a good thing we're talking about all of these topics today. turker carlson, talk to you soon. >> thanks. >> dave: when we come back, the girl scouts are here with very special songs for christmas. ♪ we wish you a merry christmas ♪ ♪ we wish you a merry christmas ♪ ♪ we wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year ♪ [ male announce
